ACTIVITIES AT TIIE
The major project of the year at the Elgin
Academy is editing the yearbook, the Hilltop.
From the first fund raising excursions to the
finished product, the days are filled with tak-
ing class and club pictures, writing articles,
and creating the stories that compose the
Our ever competent editor-in-chief, Kathy
Davis, has done a marvelous job of editing
the Hilltop. Working behind her were the
rest of the Hilltop staff, which was composed
of Penney Iohnson, assistant editor: Barbara
May, literary editor: Holly Edwards, junior
editor: Ioanne McConnell, business manager
with Caral Conte assisting: Eugene Lamp, art
editor, and Phil Fox and Leslie lgleheart,
sports editors. There are many others who
have written the articles, created screen de-
signs, and written creative prose without
which the yearbook would not have been a
success. Everyone must be congratulated on
the fine work that has been done.
With the beginning of the new school year
last September the Orange and Black staff
got off to a good start. The paper, miracu-
lously produced, came out in one of the first
weeks of school.
There is a lot of work involved in getting a
paper out every two weeks. Our editor,
Penney Iohnson, has done an excellent job.
Along with Penney and doing a fine job has
been Barby May, the front page editor. There
were many occupied in the production of the
Orange and Black. They are listed as follows:
Holly Edwards, business manager: Eugene
Lamp and Philip Fox, sports editors: Coach
Orsbom, alumni editor, and not to mention
the paper's able advisor, Mr. Spaulding.
Throughout the year the busy "O and B"
staff worked diligently to get out the paper. It
circulated not only among the students but

This year, as in the past, the Camera club
showed great accomplishment under the su-
pervision of Mr. Orr. During the year, five
hundred and more pictures were taken in-
cluding football, basketball, dances, informal
group shots and portraits. The club has proc-
essed many rolls of film taken by students
in or out of the club. The club has planned
to buy new equipment in the near future with
the money earned. The members had the
use of three cameras throughout the year, two
of which belonged to Ioe Stennett, our cam-
pus photographer. Many of the pictures
taken by the members of the Camera club
are shown here in the Hilltop.
The Camera club has always attempted to
do the finest work possible in serving the
school and the students. The following were
members: Ioe Stennett, Iackie Williams, Iames
Moncrieff, Fred Thompson, Ronald Howey,
Harry Malcolm, and Morris Sachar.
The Keynote club, the musical organization
of the Academy, headed by Mrs. Rogers,
started the year with the highly successful
The officers were Ann Rovelstad, president:
Eugene Lamp, vice-president: Holly Edwards,
secretary, and Gale Edwards, treasurer. Io-
anne McConnell and Carolyn Hall were mem-
bers at large. They were elected last year and
organized the old members into committees
for the yearly costume party called "The
Seance." The new members were initiated

during the lun making ol the evening and
were proclaimed full partners in the club.
During the year monthly meetings were
held for business or for pleasure. Usually
classical records from symphonies or operas
were played for the enjoyment of all. On
Ianuary 18 the club descended upon the
Opera House in Chicago to see and hear
"Fledermaus," the production presented by
the Metropolitan Opera Company. Reaching
school after midnight, everyone sleepily pro-
nounced it marvelous.
During a Keynote chapel program the club
song, written by Mrs. Rogers, was introduced
to the student body. This song is a lasting
reminder of the Keynote club of 1951-52.
At the beginning of the year, the boys' and
girls' dormitory councils were chosen. The
general function of the dormitory councils is
to assist in the control and operation of the
dormitories. Each dormitory is represented
by tive or six boarding students who are on
the "par" list and have been recommended
by the faculty. They must maintain academic
standards and show leadership in school
The councils meet separately once a week
on Monday night. Mr. Loomis is the senior
dormitory master tor the boys and Mrs. Baker
is the girl's housemother. Some of the duties
of the council members are: conducting in-
spection, assisting in supervision of study
halls, and maintaining leadership. The girl's
council consists of Beth Hetzler, Caral Conte,

dent in the school participating in the play.

for the entire performance were made by C.

with the assistance of the instructors in the
music and art departments.
The Christmas pageant was a series of
tableaux showing the various types ot Christ-
mas celebrations throughout the world from
the time of the nativity to the American Christ-
mas ol today. Included in the scenes were
the Nativity. with Mary, Ioseph, and shep-
herds: the Medieval Christmas showing the
carrying of the traditional yule tree: the
French Christmas with children looking out
the windows seeing Father Christmas bring-
ing toys: the English Christmas with carolers
singing under a softly lighted street comer,
and then the American scene with the typical
American Christmas tree gay and bright with
children assisting with the decoration. Ap-
propriate music was performed by the chorus
and vocal soloists under the direction of
Gloria Iune Avant with Constance Kroeger
at the piano. Ann Stuhler was the narrator
for the tableaux. Students of the iunior high
school group and the elementary school chil-
dren appeared in the production.

If you happened to walk into the art gallery
on December 4, 6, and 7, you might wonder
who all the people were dressed in Eliza-
bethan costumes. Upon further questioning
you would find that "Twelfth Night" by Wil-
liam Shakespeare was being produced by
some of the Elgin Academy students. The
play was enjoyed not only by the audiences
but by the actors also. It was not the usual
type of play, as the lines were blank verse in
many places: sword fights, and iousts were a
part of the action of the play, and the come-
dians were amusing by their actions as well
as their spoken lines.
The cast of "Twelfth Night" included the

play would have been lost. Mr. Chipman,
who successfully directed the play and de-
signed the handsome settings for the produc-

The Homecoming Dance this year was suc-
cessfully held in the art gallery on Saturday
evening, November 10, 1951. Although there
had been a hard game in the afternoon the
boys on the team were in good spirits and a
good time was generally had by all. Decora-
tions for the dance were beautifully done by
the senior girls. They very appropriately
painted a football field on the floor of the art
gallery and had orange and black streamers
placed around the building. A large abstract
design suggesting a football and goal posts
was placed in the octagon. It provided a
colorful and dramatic center of interest for
The evening was highlighted by the annual
crowning of the Homecoming Queen who
this year was Barbara May. Her court con-
sisted of Caral Conte and Beth Hetzler. The
honor of being the first Homecoming King of
the Elgin Academy was bestowed upon the
captain of the football team and president
of the senior class, Don Hedrick.
This year the Aeichlorians. the girls' society
at the Elgin Academy. have figured prom-
inently in the year's activities. At the begin-
ning of the year the Aeichs gave a tea for the
new girls. Later they had initiation for the
new girls which was probably enjoyed a little
more than the tea, especially by the initiates.
During Homecoming week end the Aeichlor-
ians gave a tea after the game and they also
sold chrysanthemums and food at the game.
Their biggest event was the annual formal
dance. This being leap year, the dance was
given on leap year day, Friday, February 29.
Named the "Blue Moon Ball," it was deco-
rated with blue lighting and various celestial
bodies including a blue moon which hung in
a prominent place over the dance orchestra.
Each month the Aeichs had an interesting
guest speaker, and a short play by some of
the girls, or a meeting to discuss future plans.
The Aeichs should be congratulated for their
excellent year under the guidance of Mrs.
Droste and Mrs. Brett.
After Christmas vacation the idea of pro-
ducing another play was passed around and
the decision was overwhelmingly in favor of
a three act play. Mr. Chipman chose the
play. "First Lady" by Katherine Dayton and
George Kaufman. There is no doubt about
the fact that it was worthwhile. "First Lady"
is one play that has to have a director with
confidence in everyone and certainly Mr.
Chipman stood up to that standard. He was
able to give a play which could be compared
with a professional one.

September, October, and November are
months for football, and the Academy played
seven games during these months under the
direction of an entirely new coaching staff.
Climaxing two weeks of conditioning, instruc-
tions on plays, and shaping of a balanced
organization, the Hilltoppers were ready for
their first test of team strength. This test came
at Eckersall Stadium where we were pitted
against Harvard's as yet untried eleven. The
result of this contest showed that the Acad-
emy eleven was still a novice group. The
regulars of the previous year provided the
moral backing for the shakier, untried mem-
bers of the team with a spark of determina-
tion. After a week of hard drilling, of mis-
takes made in the previous game, we were
ready and eager to show our new found
might against the foe of that week, St. Willa-
brord of Chicago. The might was very evi-
dent in the form of one left half, Kent Grune-
wald, and field general, Don Hedrick, who
paced the Hilltoppers to their first victory of
the season, conquering St. Willabrord 19-6.
The previously unresponsive line responded
this time, pushing the Blue and White all over
the gridiron with their unusual offensive and
Still filled with unconquerable enthusiasm,
the next week the team met Todd in the
Academy Bowl. Their enthusiasm wasn't
quite enough to force the pigskin over the
goal line, as they played to a scoreless tie.
Nevertheless, the Hilltoppers controlled the
pigskin, playing inside the Todd forty yard

line throughout most of the game. Northwest-
ern, the following Saturday, undid the Acad-
emy's plans of conquest, 20-0. The game was
a stalemate until the second quarter, when
the cadets made their first tally. Then in the
second half, the Hilltoppers showed some
spirit as they launched an aerial attack which
showed some signs of really developing into
a late threat, but an off-side penalty clinched
a shutout for Northwestem.
On October 27, the Academy played host
to the Wayland eleven in a one sided contest
which the Beavers won by a decisive score of
25-0. The Wayland eleven had just a bit too
much class for the understaffed Hilltoppers.
but dynamic, five feet four "Pancho" Nunez
surprised many a Wayland giant as he averted
a number of their scoring threats with his
brilliant tactics. In the sixth game, at Glen-
wood, the elements, as well as Glenwood's
spark-plug team, gave the Academy a trou-
blesome time, as they fell victim to an early
winter blizzard and a 33-0 score. As the team
took the field, the snow had been falling for
a couple of hours and by the time the game
had ended the gridiron was a crust of ice.
with the Hilltoppers in the same condition.
The North Shore Raiders came, saw, and con-
quered the Academy in its Homecoming and
final game of the season, which was played
on Elgin High's field as the Academy Bowl
was under a foot of snow. Though the score
was one-sided, our lads exhibited some fine,
sharp blocking and tackling, interspersed
with a few bits of uncanny offensive play.

vs. the Elgin Academy
The Iunior Varsity Football Squad
The basketball record was none too impres-
sive for the nineteen fifty one-fifty two season,
as you can tell by looking at the record. Prac-
tices started the Monday after the North Shore
football game. The team showed real promise
the first few weeks, and when we played the
Todd School we had a good game, losing by
only one point. However, the team then lost
some of its original fire and lost the second
game by ten points. The second loss to Todd
was the turning point in the season, and if we
had won it the season probably would have
been much different. Almost all of the games
were fairly close, excluding the games with
Lake Forest, Park, Harvard, and Northwestem
but the score always went the wrong way.
Individually, the first six players stacked
up as follows: At center, Kent Grunewald did
a terrific job of rebounding, for his height was
six-foot-one. Also he was cr good shot. It would
have helped a great deal if we had not lost
him at mid-season. The guard, probably the
most effective defense man on the team, was
Don Hedrick. our veteran senior, who always
was in there pitching. His height was five-
foot-eleven, and he rebounded well. The sec-
ond guard, Rex Conrad, a sophomore, drib-
bled through practically anything. Rex was
a fast thinker, and was a great asset to the
team. Ion Schurmeier, a six foot freshman,
took over the center post after Kent graduated
and displayed excellent basketball ability.
His spirit and hard work helped the team
considerably. We predict a great future for
Ion on the hardwoods. Last but not least,
was the freethrower expert of the team, Fran-
cis DeSalvo. He really proved his accuracy
in hitting twelve of the fifteen freethrows in
one of the last games. The other forward and
scoring star was Dick Moulton, who in two
consecutive games made twenty-two points.
Dick was also a good team man and really
added balance to the team.
There was one person that deserves men-
tion. He was an important cog in the wheel
of operations, Coach Iohnson. Win or lose,
our coach was always in there. We look for-
ward to his coaching again next year.

Varsity Squad 8
Iunior Varsity Squad
The foe has been met and is victorious. so
went the saying after the swimming meets.
This was due to the fact that the material
available was inexperienced. There were,
however, two outstanding members, Dick
Howe and Ion Hamill, both eighth graders,
although there were no retuming lettermen.
Also new to the swimming team this year was
its coach, Mr. Orr.
The team took two trips this year, both to
Wisconsin, to Wayland Academy and to Mil-
waukee University School. Both teams won
by over a 30 point margin.
To round out the schedule there were four
meets slated at home. They were Naper-
ville, Milwaukee University School, Wayland.
and Ianesville High School.
Wayland's second match with the Hilltop-
pers proved to be the best meet of the year.
The meet ended with a score of 44-39 with
Wayland winning. Dick Howe as Elgin's
high-point man had twelve points.
The rest of the team consisted of Carl
Droste, Chan Hatcher, Ivar Hennings. Paul
Schriever, Harold Sweet, and Dave Wright.
Although the swimming season was not suc-
cessful in contests won, a lot of experience
The Swimming Team
The Track Team
Another season is gone, not such a bad one
either. As it progressed everyone seemed to
improve, until we finally struck a happy me-
dium. The iirst track meet was a good example
of the whole season. It was a triangular meet,
and we took second. We were a little short of
men all year, which hurt us a great deal. As a
whole. the track team wasn't bad, and de-
serves some credit for their contributions.
The golf team didn't fare as well this year.
Although the boys were out there trying, the
odds always were too strong. If you've ever
played golf, you probably know how hard it is
to come back once you've lost a stroke to your
opponent. This year the team consisted of
Chan Hatcher, Rex Conrad. Gordon Barber,
Sims Crump, and Phil Fox.
The tennis team had another good season,
winning a majority of their matches. The net-
men started oli with cr victory and kept their
losses to a minimum.
Hats off to the Coaches . . . Mr. Orr. who
coached golf, Mr. Iohnson and Mr. Morris, the
track team's backers, and the tennis mainstay,

Down to the shore
And stood on the bank
Quxetly the waves lapped
And lxcked wxth salty tongues
the darkened sand
The smell of old tlme

And sxlence too deep for words
hung over all wlth a great supenonty
The pungent odor

And new mxlk smell

Hung heavy and sweet

I wandered all alone one day
To thlnk wherem an answer lay
An answer to the riddle old
Ot why men hght to conquer gold
Do they not know that peace rs rlght
That men were never made to f1ght"
I asked these questxons of the sky
But answer came ln one shnll cry
A whrr ot wmgs then cut the axr
And as I stood entranced from there
I watched a grant eagle ily
Across the wxde expanse ot sky
And plummet toward the earth where ay
Some small and unsuspectmg prey
He soared agam and there on hxgh
The sllence shattered with h1s cry
And then had come my ans ring thought
I knew my eagle held the key
And strlfe must go on endlessly

THE FORMULA FOR FAILURE
Many books artrcles wrse sayrngs and such have
been dedrcated to the knack of bexng a success have
you however seen any books artrcles etc on how
to be a farlure' It not pay close attentron to thrs tor
here rs the real rnfo
Because of lack ot space I wxll deal only wrth how
to tall rn school The easy way rs to try to grve the
wrong answer to questrons but that rs the way of one
wrth no rnrtratrve Frrst pay no attentron rn class and
try your hardest to drstract others from berng attentrve
Thrs can be accomplrshed by swrngrng from the lrghts
blowrng polrce whrstles or puttrng your feet on the
desk and screamrng rnsults at the teacher Thrs rs a
rapid and sure way For a more enjoyable and drawn
out method contmue readrng
You wrll hnd that rt helps never to study especrally
before tests But srnce we are not paymg attentron
anyway we shouldnt know what to study
If the rnstructor has any peculrar ieatures such as
two heads amputated neck bald head or warts be
sure to laugh rudely pomt and joke about them
Always rnterrupt the teacher and rl rebuked have
some wrtty comments such as Go soak your head
somethrng bexng careful to arm between the eyes Un
cases where the teacher has three eyes arm at the
mrddle one D
Ii you havent succeeded rn tarlrng yet the mstructor
rs of a very drffrcult type and should be dealt with
accordrngly Drscover hrs pet peeve and commence to
exercrse thrs practrce as often as possrble For an
added drscomfort slrt the trres of hrs car and break
the wrndshreld Fmd out as much as possrble about
hrs iamrly and rrdrcule them Tear pages out of the
teacher rs very fastrdrous prck out somethrng wrong
rn hrs dress and crrtrcrze
answer book and throw them all over the floor
And now rf strll you havent succeeded rn laxhng
a strck of dynamrte placed behmd hrs ear and lrt ot

THE OF . Ann Stuhler '54
He sat on a dirty bench and listened to the night.
Occasionally there were moments of complete and
absolute silence, so deep that he hardly dared to
move. His breathing was regular, as that of a person
in sleep. But he wasn't asleep: he was thinking.
Soon a train would come and take him away from
everything, away from all the filthy rotten people he
had known and the dreary life he had lived.
A serious move this was, running away. Running
away is usually considered cowardly, but this was
the bravest thing he had ever done.
The heavy quiet was occasionally broken by the
far-off sound of a train whistle. The long drawn out
cry of a train, like the wail of a dying animal . . .
long, thin. and helpless.
Closer and closer came the sound, and soon the
rails began to hum slightly and tingle with appre-
hensive anticipation. So did the man. As the train
came closer every fiber in his body, every nerve,
became tense, began to tighten and fill his body with
dread. Was he strong enough to stay and to get on
Now his breathing was faster, irregular and nerv-
ous. The sound was coming closer and closer. Click.
clack, the wheels turned and spoke to him. "Coward,
coward, can't get on. coward, coward, can't get on."
Over and over they whispened in the distance. He
breathed harder and harder now. his fingers gripping
the edge of the bench. Now the sigh of the train
Suddenly the train was on top of him, the wheels
turning, grinding out their merciless song. Quickly
a great roar, and then suddenly the sound again
began to fade away. Softer and softer, until it could
no longer be heard. Then all was very silent again.
and the air was heavy and thick. Again the breath-
ing was heard, a little slower now, and then a new
sound . . . the soft crunch of gravel. the sound of
footsteps growing dimmer and dimmer in the distance.

A MATTER OF CHOICE
At the txme of the Pemnsula Campargn near the
lames Hrver there was a troop of men led by Cap
tam Wlllard Kerr Thxs troop was composed of sea
soned fmghters who had no love for the Confederates
Captam Kerr rode along a lonely road wrth hrs

drrty face whxch looked as xt xt mxght be a mce

Hrs men were gettmg restless They had not seen
action for some tlme They had been lookmg for
houses to burn and other types of entertamment
As Kerrs band rounded a bend rn the road they
saw a great plantation overlookmg the countryside
Its pxllars were whlte and clean but there was no
As the troop road up the lane Kerr yelled Go to
it menl and hrs men waltxng for the OK leaped
ahead Kerr let hrs men go hrst to have some fun
before he put them to work When he pulled hrs
horse to a halt he saw Corporal Kraft holdrng a
fnghtened fighting girl He went over to her and
told Kraft to let her go
She explamed that she and her llttle brother were
the only ones rn the house except for some servants
Her father and mother had been sent to a pnsoner
of war camp One of the men yelled Hey Captam

No soldier were holdmg up here replled Kerr
Captam Kerr was fascmated with Lucys charm

CURTAIN OF FOG
As the gray fog crept over the land,
All of distance was lost to my view.
And I stopped half-way home from my walk
To let it encompass me too.
I stood close to a stately old elm,
And soon it was all I could see:
For the softness of silvery fog
Had me severed from all but this tree.
C Kathy Davis '52
I gazed up at its dark, leafless boughs
Which were patterned against a late sky
And the stars twinkled down through the
Lasting symbols of beauty on high.
The fog had then covered each line
Of the harshness of earth's lowly realm,
While the glory of heavens shone down
Through the limbs of the timeless old elm.
All I felt as I stood in the night
Was the soft touch of mist on my face,
And I knew I should never more see
Such great beauty in any one place.
INGREDIENTS FOR SUCCESS
I cried. and tried to find a soul
Who'd try to sympathize,
But in this world to reach a goal,
You work and then you rise.
A person has to truly work
To harbor self-respect.
From life's ordeals he must not shirk,
Nor jobs must he neglect.
To work with love, to toil and slave.
A life in which there's strife,
A moral which is strong and brave,
With these we make our life.
